: they are a coveted voting block for the president, in this fiercely contested swing state. four years ago, mr. obama won 18- to 29-year-olds nationwide by 66% to 32%. a margin so large, young people were credited with putting him over the top in several key states. >> are you registered to vote? >> woodruff: surveys suggest he's sure to capture the majority of the youngest voter block again. but after four years of watching the president grapple with the realities of governing, they're not expected to give him another two-to-one win. 18-year-old freshman noel fisher says getting his peers to vote for president obama in 2012 is crucial. >> i would say is the biggest the largest split between ideology between the republican candidate and the democratic candidate the republicans right now are trending extreme conservative and it's just i don't think we have room for any of those extremes in our nation >> woodruff: but for all the enthusiasm of these obama volunteers, national surveys of young voters show a more complex picture. john della volpe is director of polling for harvard's institute of politics
to 35-year-olds. those that had hope and dreams who voted for obama four years ago. they're seeing their economic futures decimated. there is a lot of people look at the overall picture, foreign policy, domestic policy, energy prices, job market, debt situation and something is not on track. that's what we're seeing. bill: this also stand out too. in our polling. when asked, which candidate would likely take the lead on world events, keep in mind what is happening with libya and throughout the arab world, governor romney is at 52%. president obama is at 36%. what explains that? >> i think it is explained explicitly what happened over last several weeks with libya and egypt and 30 other capitals where our embassies were targeted for attack. let's get blunt. no way to sugar coat this. we have been flat-out lied to. they know they lied. as if airplanes crashing into the world trade center said those were just accidents. anybody with two eyes and iq of plant life knows what happened in libya was not spontaneous reaction to a 13 minute video on youtube. it was a planned orchestrated att
for mitt romney and that obama could hold. he is only four electrical vote s short. this is not happening. at this point is option a four or five point lead. if you look at some of the data, you see the worst group for obama in 2008 was the white working class. his hope is that he would be able to expand the marching quite a bit. you think it would not have been that part of a cell. it has been hard hit economically. a lot of ticked off factory workers. you think it would have been an ideal place. this is not to not to be the case. bromley is not anywhere close to driving up the margin among white working-class voters. he is at best a few points later. he is doing no better among white college graduates. that is one reason why the state is looking pretty favorable to barack obama. if the election was held today to carry it buys much as he did not go to thousand eight. if you look at it geographically, obama is doing really well. he seems to be holding his support where it counts. this is the great state of pennsylvania. if the romney team could have play, itylvania and playin would have b
nader, a four-time presidential candidate, says president obama should be poised for a landslide victory, but swings control of congress dramatically back to democrats, but instead he's running a selfish campaign that's done little to help his party on capitol hill. in an interview,, mr. nader, also predicted a major shakeup in american politics by 2016 when a billionaire political messiah will be prepared to spend his own money to force choices in the next presidential election. host: that's in the "washington times" this morning, and this is also in the "washington times," "man behind insulting video arrested." a california man behind a crudely produced anti-islamic video that inflamed parts of the middle east was arrested thursday. host: back to your calls on media coverage of campaign 2012. david in illinois, independent line. hi, david. caller: hello. thank you for c-span. i think c-span is pretty fair in its coverage, but i think the liberal media is totally biased. we even have this on a local level. they just run the major networks with news coverage. you can see they tape obama
, the worst is iran with nuclear weapons. bill, where are we? four years, obama has been talking. four years the iranians have it happened to build -- >> bill: no doubt about it. they thumbed their nose at him. >> north korea route. >> colonel hunt, i certainly understand that model, but iran is different. north korea doesn't threaten the world economy, the world oil supplies. they weren't led by meeseianic nut cases. they didn't have this -- >> ralph, you're -- >> bill: the north korea had a restraining agent in that sense does to this day and that's china. there is no restraining agent on iran at all. none. >> but guy, iran has hezbollah and hamas, if they uncork them, hezbollah in lebanon and hamas in palestine and float one of their three submarines in the strait of arrest had you seen, you have real problems. my point is that if you bomb, if the israelis go to bomb, there is no success. the only way to get at those bunkers is nuclear bunker busters and nobody is going to throw nukes at iran. my point is there is so much more to do against iran than talk about -- >> bill: look, you can c
-point margin for barack obama over the last three or four months. what that means in is the idea that obama could get 80% of the minority vote again is actually quite plausible based on these and other data. that looks like is what is going to get you. if he doesn't get 80, he will get 78 or 79. then the road at the bottom scioscia the breakout for college grad, some college or less or working class. the right and figures for likely voters, obama is doing a little bit better among white college graduate voters than he did in 2008, a to point margin, close to four points again. in the some college or less grip, he improved by 13 points which is somewhat better than he did in 2008 when he lost by 18. so remember what i was saying about the outlandishly large margins that mitt romney probably needs to be competitive among white working-class, the run up among white working-class voters. he's not anywhere close. that's the bottom line. this is true across many polls. you might see a margin of 20 points for mitt romney. you might see a margin of 22 points but nowhere do you see the ou
that automatically? this time around it's more dangerous, isn't it? for president obama to blame a guy four years ago. >> yeah, because people are going to say, what did you do lately? you've had four years to fix the economy and look at the economic malaise we're still in. look at the jobs reports. last month, adding 96,000 jobs. not even enough to keep pace with population growth. chris: we put the first debate to the matthews meter. 12 of our regulars, including john, kelly and howard is mitt romney more likely to break through wednesday night on style points or on substantive arguments? nine say substance. three say style. you voted with the majority. howard, -- >> well, he's got to do it. again, deftly with humor. but he's got to brace the president. he's got to say, look, you're responsible. you're the economic commander in chief. there has not been nearly enough progress and not what you promised. here are five promises you made. you haven't met any of them. why do you deserve another four years, sir, if you haven't done that? that's the case he's got to make in the first debate. chris: well d
marks. telling reporters the middle-class has been buried over the last four years not even aware obama was leading the nation and robert gibbs said he was referring to damage the bush had caused. >> we had eight years of terrific decisions, wall street rate teeing its own rules that took place four years ago of which we had to dig out from each day. be clear. the middle-class was buried for a lot longer than we were dealing with bad economic decisions. lou: stephanie cutter contradicted trying to spin them out of the last four years telling another network we're absolutely not we made our predecessors by any means. three days after david axelrod and senior advisor told different stories of what the president knew of the terrorist attack in benghazi. less than 24 hours the president is in a debate with himself. of the daily caller uncovers a tape of senator obama june 2007 engaging in defense of class warfare rhetoric to a group of black ministers. take a look at his controversial remarks from his 2007 speech side-by-side with remarks less than one year later. >> special shout out to my
graduates voted in 2008. minorities 8024 obama. what college graduates of four. deficit. in the right-hand column you see how much of demographic change we have just the last five years based on current population is eligible voter data. according to the stated just the last four years using an increase of three points from the share of eligible voters. decreased three points for the share of voters who are white, non college, and working class. that's quite a change. now, let's think a little bit about what these figures mean. the figures from 2,008 and the figures from today. first of all, even though it looks like the minority vote shares to go up. let's say that obama gets a% of the minority felt. let's say again he only loses white college graduates by four points. mitt romney would have to get double the margin of 18 points among the white working class. that's the change this bright. if this test is realized, the minority vote goes to buy a couple points. 26 percent in 2008. 28 percent in 2012. again, the white college graduate and minority stays about the same, mitt romney wil
campaign. and obama has not debated since four years ago. dana, what do you think? >> dana: except for "the view." >> bob: what do you think of the expectations? dais when president obama says that, it's not credible. they don't believe that. they think so highly of themselves and their campaign, when he says that, you know he is setting it up so the headline the next day will be despite expectation of him not doing well, president obama shined. that's what you will read. >> greg: surprisingly good point. gamesmanship. obama doesn't believe there is anything on earth anyone can do better than him. false modesty that is comically nauseating after a while. no, there is nothing that he thinks romney can do better than him. >> eric: a good reason for that. everyone after the last four years ago said what a great speaker he is! he is one of the best political speakers over the walk the earth. remember that? then no, i'm not that good. >> bob: do you think you have chance of setting expectation lower for himself? >> andrea: does he? >> bob: yeah. >> andrea: he wants them be as low as possible. >>
, vote early, obama, 57-41. >> that's the organizational difference and also we saw it four years ago with obama versus mccain. obama did better among early voters. in a sense, you saw this ad that obama has taken out in battleground states which is almost a closing ad where he talks directly to the camera with new message of economic patriotism, and that's what you do at the end. it is the end or start of election month as opposed to election day. the obama people seem to have a better organizational handle on this than romney. >> the other thing we saw, a movement over time was the right direction, wrong trend. >> that's what's lifting an incumbent president. saw it especially in new hampshire where he opened a significant lead over mitt romney. >> what was the right track, wrong track? >> closed negative 20 points now to negative 7 points. still more people see it as not going well, but a huge change there, that plays an incumbent's way. >> how people read the state poll, it is about trends at this point. >> yeah. >> everything we come out with is a second poll in the last month. >
see another four years in office. michelle obama has won the "family circle" magazine presidential cookie bake-off. the magazine does this every four years for white and dork chocolate chip cookies. peter, you remember we talked about these. she won with 52% of reader's votes beating out ann romney's m&m cookies with 48%. >> john: were they -- >> recipes in the magazine. which one would you rather eat? >> john: she had a white chocolate -- >> white and dark chocolate. >> john: ann romney had m&m. it works itself out all around. that's exciting. do you ever feel like it is too wonky talking about these policy issues? >> no. >> john: good. >> by the way, i was all for ann romney's recipe. >> yeah, you were. >> john: that's because you hate barack obama because you're a racist. you hated michelle's cookies. what's wrong with you? >> it seems fitting that -- >> john: i don't want michelle obama's socialist cookies no. >> that's a painfully accurate accurate -- >> john: michelle obama with her sleeves
will that affect the voter's opinions? look at what happened four years ago. watch this. barack obama spoke more than two minutes longer than john mccain during the second debate in 2008. and during the third debate, there was an even bigger gaffe. obama talked a full five minutes longer than mcain. one major reason for the extra time obama received was the rebuttal time for mccain's numerous attacks. we're going to see what tonight's exchange brings since the moderator promised more interaction between these two candidates. candy's back at the debate hall in denver watching all of this unfold. it's getting crowded. i understand behind you. >> it is. think wedding right now. you're beginning to see folks come into this hall and on one side, will be the obama campaign supporters and on the other side will be the romney campaign supporters or at least in those front rows. we see people like nancy pelosi is here et cetera. you'll see the wives sort of right in the podiums are tilted. so, president obama will actually, he'll be this way. president obama will be looking at his wife who's sitting on t
of the meltdown of the financial sector, still at the center of the campaign in eejohnccain and barack obama, which was this date four years ago, the focus was the war. in fact, both wars. >> do you, senator mccain, much has been said about the lessons of vietnam. what do you see as the lessons of iraq? >> i think the lessons of iraq are very clear that you cannot have a failed strategy. thanks to this great general david pa tray yous, they are succeeding and winning in iraq. >>the lde into the war in the first place. six years ago i stood up and opposed this war. we hadn't finished the job in afghanistan. we hadn't caught bin laden. we hadn't put al qaeda to rest. an asecetht that it was going to be a distraction. now, senator mccain and president bush had a very different judgment. >> so that was this date, 40 days out from the election in '08 and 40 days out from the election in '04. in '04 the campaign was consumed with the debate overt ast one of our wars. 40 days out from the election in '08, in the midst of the financial meltdown the campaign was consumed with both of the wars. now it
the last five weeks. if you elect obama for the next four years, there will be no better than the past four years. i happen to believe that is true, but not very inspiring. it is hard to blame the guy. he wants to get reelected with a pretty narrow cast approach to democratic and independent constituencies. i do not think we will get the kind of framing you would like. i am a little less pessimistic. i do think reality matters. and we will hit a cliff and all kinds of ways. the fed cannot keep printing money and expecting the world to take it or buy treasury notes to fund trillion dollar deficits forever. the economy is slow and going into another dip. i actually think the next president will have a moment between november 7, and i do not know, this summer or fall of 2013 to do a lot. i would bet there is a huge legislative agenda in 2013. i did not really by the gridlock argument. if obama gets reelected, evil have a mandate basically -- he will have a mandate basically the lesser version of bowel- simpson. if romney wins, he will have a mandate for some version of the right and budget, pr
obama and now president obama did in the democrat primary four years ago as well as mitt romney had debates four years ago and also in this most recent primary. president obama does have the advantage of having done the one on one with john mccain four years ago. he went one on one with mccain. he did very well. most would say he beat john mccain. so i think -- i think the onerous is on president obama. >> the director of debates at southern illinois university wrote an op-ed for cnn and said both have strengths and weaknesses and this will be one of the most important presidential debates we've seen in history. here's how he outlines it. when you talk about romney's strength he says he's smooth, knowledge able, excellent first lines and tends to pivot. he says president obama, his strengths, he can be detached, he has an ability to focus and crystallize that's very strong on his reasoning. donna, do you see either one of these as being accurate here? do you think that there's some sort of opportunity, if you will for the president to attack on romney's strengths or is he pretty for
a state that has been very close. obama has a three or four-point lead. quite a bit of demographic change. minority eligible voters down by three percentage points. the white working-class voters. they have gone down by three percentage points. again, it doesn't appear that romney 2008 among white college graduates, he is not making nearly enough progress. if you break it down geographically, it looks very similar to the data in 2008. finally, the poster child -- obama is running ahead, not merely as far as he did in 2,082,008. that is a very quick maybe it is time for me to step back and catch my breath and say why is this? what is going on? so the health care reform act and so on, the stimulus, it was looked upon unfavorably by a lot of voters, and it helped the economy come back from cataclysmic disaster, it didn't exactly turn him into a picture of health. and voters tend to be unforgiving about things like that. voters can remember a few years back. voters really remember what they had for breakfast. i think we are seeing that, in fact, there is an influence on who ran before and how
affirmed. the status quo in this race has been a steady, stub burn three or four-point lead for barack obama and at that point, romney would be running out of big-moment opportunities to turn this thing around. that's what i'm looking for. here with us now in denver, we have howard fineman, the "huffington post" media group. said he is the buffalo bob of our show. >> now i'm don meredith because don meredith always used to say on monday night football, when the game was nearly over, woe start singing. ♪ the party's over but not there yet. >> bring you back to sing at some point, heward. before we do that, we have another task and i thought howard would be the perfect guy to lead this off. basically, we want to look ahead to this debate tonight and all for a moment, assume the role of moderator, jim lehrer, pbs, a moderating this thing tonight. let just go around right now, we will start with you, howard. you got jim lehrer's seat, the two questions in front of you -- two candidates right in front of you. what is the one question that you think would you most like to see jim lehrer as
the murder of four americans in libya. and questions over how the obama administration is handling intelligence in that terror attack. a reminder now two navy seals, an embassy staffer and our u.s. body, christopher stevens, died in that attack, and top republicans in the house and senate are now demanding more information. including specific communications between the embassy and our ambassador and the state department prior to those murders. fox news chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge is live in washington with more. catherine, what are we learning now about these new letters? >> reporter: thank you, megyn. fox first obtaining this letter sent by the head of the house intelligence armed services appropriations judiciary and foreign relations committees, significantly they have oversight on this issue. it says they are, quote: disturbed by the public statements made by members of the administration that would lead the american public to believe this attack was a protest gone wrong. we stand to return to washington. and right after that briefing thursday by the sec
four years have been quote buried. we agree. stop digging bile electing mitt romney the next president of the united states. >>> the obama campaign is calling that an out of context attack. the numbers they say mr. biden buried line including that that reflect high unemployment rising debt and smaller paychecks over the last four years. >> newt gingrich is talking about. >> newt beginnihe went on the r what he has to do. >>> it is a clear-cut situation. romney has to be clear and factual and stick to his grounds. he has to recognize he's up against the incumbent president of the united states. rom hee will t romney will try r call him. romney is going to have to communicate past layer and past obama to reach the american people. if he does that i think he could have a very good night and you could see a very good race by thursday morning. >> later in the show you are going to hear from romney's former debate coach who is with him during the primary. oo tonight's debate is exactly what we would like to hear from you on today. what would you like to hear from the candidates tonight? send
for how he will go about trying to depolarize washington? >> well, president obama has repeatedly demonstrated during his four years in office that he's reached across the aisle, tried to work with republicans. he's had some success, particularly when he's gone out on the road and taken his case to the american people. that's how we essentially shame the republicans in congress into extending the payroll tax cut, which would have taken $1,000 out of the paychecks of middle class americans. it's how we prevented the tuition loan interest rate from doubling. this is a combination of making sure that we have people on the other side of the aisle willing to sit down with the president and work together to solve our deficit issues to continue to get our economy turned around and securing the american people's help to put pressure on the republican members of congress who seem only focused on one job, barack obama's. >> all right. debbi wasserman shultz, chairwoman of the democratic national committee. thanks for being on this morning. >> thanks, chuck. >>> the monthly auto sales number
president obama is in unchartered water. he hasn't debated in four years. instead of being the 40 something senator who has got two years in office with this great orator skills and promise, talk to your enemy, i'm going to reach out to the islamic community, the muslim world. i'm going to rebalance our economy, make it a fairer situation. and then promise health care and immigration reform. he could say whatever he wants and senator mccain sits there and g that's impossible, but i can't prove it. now we have four years to look at and say, what did you do? why did do you it? defend what you've done. that makes it a lot easier for governor romney n my mind, than senator mccain. no more theories. now we've resume. >> steve: that's right. and in fact, the romney camp has kinds of changed their strategy over the last couple of days publicly and now they're going to make it a choice. so many people know that the economics of our situation right now are horrible and if you look at history, there is no reason this president would be reelected given the past, if it's prologged, given the fact that
. >> the obama administration is facing serious questions whether the deaths of the four men could have been prevented because of ongoing security concerns. the state department official says the u.s. is drawing down its staff and embassy in libya's capit capital. >>> we just got word mitt romney will have a phone call conversation with benjamin netanyahu and so will president obama. it comes two days after president obama stood before the united nations and warned against a nuclear iran. yesterday, netanyahu underscored iran having a nuclear bomb and shrugged off. he said the world may be months away from the point of no return. >> where should a red line be drawn? a red line should be drawn right here. befo before, before iran completes the second stage of nuclear enrichment necessary to make a bomb. before iran gets to a point where it's a few months away or a few weeks away from amassing enough enriched uranium from making a nuclear weapon. >> mahmoud ahmadinejad accused israel of carrying out a campaign of ethnic cleansing. netanyahu fired back saying the state hood of palestinians cann
of president obama just like more john mccain four years ago and i talked to senator portman in an exclusive interview about how he prepares to prepare romney. >> you have to figure out how they're likely to express themselves. you know, what the body language is like. try to imitate the person but you try to give a fair presentation to whoever you're working with as to what they're likely to do. >> i tried to role play with him. i prepared to be mitt romney and to see how he was barack obama. >> did he play along? >> no. didn't go there. >> would have like to have been the vice presidential nominee and gets to play the president in these preparations. >> now key to the campaign. >> what's the president need to do this in debate? >> do no harm. no gaffes, obviously. second, he has to seem obviously presidential, down to earth, substantive all at once. that's a high hurdle. and third, crucially, make sure he doesn't come across as thin skinned or ar ro gabt when he faces the inevitable attacks from romney. that's challenging for a sitting president. they're not often confronted with somebody
